Probably no thanks to the bad reviews (or not), we had been setting aside the urge to watch this third instalment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy which incidentally also is the final episode of the nine-part “Skywalker saga” as soon as it come to the cinemas. Poster source: www.starwars.com.
When was the last time you saw one of the most famous Tamil movie hero MGR actually killed a villain in a movie? The harshest response from MGR that I can recall is whipping back his “Uncle” Nambiar in the movie, Enga Veettu Pillai. Image source: Google.
Back in the 1950s, all the way to the 1990s, the Tamil movie heroes are literally worshipped as being good, kind, and helpful and will never hurt anyone. Often coming from poor or working class, they are treated to be “one of us” – one would understand the struggles & challenges of the common man.

IT came out in 2017…
Had anyone watched the evil clown movie called IT?
This horror movie came out in 2017 – I had wanted to watch it in theater back then but I did not have any chance and over time I had forgotten about it. Then last week, I managed to catch this movie and I now know why people got scared of clowns (more sighting happened in US before this movie came out). Seeing a clown with a red balloon standing in front of you did would have sent a shiver down anyone’s spine. It is worst if you (like me) prefer watching this movie late at night, expecting the unexpected.

“A long time ago in a galaxy far far away…”
Those iconic words alone had my heart pumping hard and left me in a trance. The new Star Wars movie is THE movie that both me and my son have been waiting for ever since the rumours of a new Star Wars movie first started on the net a few years ago.
It suppose to be a quick post on Shankar’s Nanban but I ended up writing more especially after yesterday I watched again the well made 3 Idiots
(The guy on the far right – your right – seems better than the rest. Trust me, you will be safer watching the original 3 Idiots than the “new” idiots in Nanban – they are nowhere close to the beauty of story-telling and acting in 3 Idiots.… Click to read the rest
I started blogging in 2005 – it seems to be “in” thing back then
I started blogging mainly because I wanted an avenue to put my thoughts in writing and improve on my mastery of English (I am still trying). And along the way, I have picked something on presentation, html and coding.… Click to read the rest
This was one of the most waited movies in my list for 2011!
(One of the best scenes in the movie – Cheran facing off the criminals with just a small knife on a bridge. One to one and almost immediate – no stupid scenes like one hero flying or punching 20 guys at one go. … Click to read the rest
I know, I know…this review is more than a month old late!
(I know there was trouble when I saw a “Borg cube” at the opening credit of the movie. Poster source: Wikipedia)
Before I start with the review, let me tell you upfront that we have been duped, major time, by Shankar and the studio marketers (ya, they did a good job with that) with the whole hype before the movie was released.… Click to read the rest
